The Play that Changed Everything

I had this post set to go Sunday, but the Post-Gazette threw their's up Saturday so here it is . . .

Today Sunday is the anniversary of the single most important play in the history of the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise.

The miraculous win over the Raiders changed the way that fans perceived the Steelers; and, to a certain extent, changed the way the players perceived themselves. And while they went on to lose to the Dolphins in the AFC Championship game (we'll never forget Larry Siple's fake punt, 37 yard run that broke the Steelers' backs), this most improbable of catches ushered in a new, historic era in Pittsburgh Steelers football.
